Bill Hader grew up in Tulsa like an idiot in some book…

I don’t know a lot about Bill Hader. That’s probably a good thing. I know he’s from Tulsa, was a cast member on SNL and has played the role of “Dumb Cop” in several movies, but that’s about it.

Anyway, Bill hosted SNL last week and gave a little dig to his hometown in the opening part of his monologue. Check it out:

In all honesty, that’s not so bad. It’s not like he performed a sketch where his employer transferred him to the Tulsa office.

Tulsa native, TLO turncoat and John Fulbright fan boy Matt Carney covered the item for NewsOK.com. He seemed kind of proud of the “self-deprecating” mention of Oklahoma’s second city:

The Moore High School terrorist who wasn’t actually a terrorist spoke to Channel 25…

moore high school intruder

During our state’s most recent bout of Islamaphobia, Moore Police held a much-hyped press conference to warn the public that an Arab man with a thick accent was probably scouting out Moore High School for an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack.

Here’s KOKH Fox 25′s coverage of the event:

Police are searching for a man who they say walked into a Moore school and started asking “suspicious” questions.

Moore Police say security at Moore High School needs to be discussed because the door the man entered was left open and the incident wasn’t reported till two days later.

In a press conference on Wednesday, police said a man with a thick Arabic accent walked into Moore High School last Monday and asked a teacher and two students questions, though no word on what those questions were.

Police say the man got in through the performing arts door, went straight to cafeteria and spoke to the students.

He was in building only few minutes, police say.

Witnesses describe the suspect as an Arab man in his 40′s, about 5’7 to 5’8 with salt and pepper hair.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.

Not too long after the press conference and immediate red alert local media hysteria, the man in question was tipped off by a friend that “Hey, you’re a terrorist and the police are looking for you.” Surprisingly, he then contacted and met with police, and was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing.

Apparently, he wasn’t an Arab or terrorist at all. He’s just your everyday US citizen from India who shows up for TV interviews wearing knockoff Beats, Oakley sunglasses and an Heisenberg-inspired fedora. The only missing was a bluetooth earpiece:

Yep, that’s the guy. His name is McKesh Dadwal. In his interview with Channel 25, he explains why he was casually hanging out a high school in the middle of the afternoon asking students “suspicious” questions:

Dig up your spiffiest lederhosen gang, because the alleged best Oktoberfest in the country is back in Tulsa this weekend!

If you’ve never hiked across the river for this hot mess of an occasion, this is a great year to start. The weather’s projected to be perfect, our home state’s football games are early-ish on Saturday, and I for one can never think of a sound reason to pass up a bratwurst washed down with a cold dunkel.

I’m a veteran of this high holy holiday…but in case you aren’t, I’ve listed out a few need-to-know tips to maximize your utility for the weekend. Here’s goes.

6 ways the State House of Representatives can stop same-sex marriages

Gaymarriage

Well, the ink on the same-sex marriage license that have been issued in the great state of Oklahoma aren’t even dry, but you can rest assured that there are those who are working hard to prevent any more from being issued. State Representatives Mike Ritzke and Sally Kern are “reaching out” to Governor Fallin and State Attorney General Scott Pruitt to do something to stop same-sex marriage. Basically, they’re whining like children who do not get their way.

Via The Tulsa World:

Two Oklahoma legislators, including one from Broken Arrow, urged Gov. Mary Fallin and Attorney General Scott Pruitt on Tuesday to do everything they can to get the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on same-sex marriage.

The Court last week said it would not hear any of the seven pending petitions on the issue, including one from Oklahoma.

“The Court is essentially shirking its responsibilities and leaving state lawmakers and court clerks with little guidance on what to do,” said Rep. Mike Ritze, R-Broken Arrow. “Our position on this issue is clear, and, frankly, the Court owes the nation a final decision so we can move forward.”

“The citizens of Oklahoma overwhelmingly voted to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman,” said Rep. Sally Kern, R- Oklahoma City. “I hope Gov. Fallin and Attorney General Pruitt will use the power of their offices to seek a review by the Court.”

It was not clear what, if anything, the governor and attorney general can do under the circumstances. Fallin and Pruitt have previously denounced the court for declining to hear the cases, and Pruitt filed a friend of the court brief defending Oklahoma’s 2004 state constitutional amendment that effectively banned same-sex marriage.

Here’s the thing with our state legislature. Even if something they’ve chosen to do is overturned or found unconstitutional, they’re going to find a way.

Now, since Kern and Ritzke aren’t people we would typically ask to join our team at Free Trivia Night, we went ahead and did some of the leg work for them. That’s right. We’ve come up with ways for them to prevent same-sex marriages!

Don’t worry, this poster at Cooper Middle School doesn’t promote or endorse any religion…

faith in america

The painting above is called “Faith in America” by Donald Zolan. If you want, you can view a print in the main office of Cooper Middle School, or probably any Hobby Lobby or Mardel.

As you can clearly see, the painting subtly portrays two young atheist children sarcastically praying to a Christian god in front of the American flag to appease their mega-controlling Sunday School-teaching parents. It’s pretty obvious, right? Only a smartass would be that devout, cute, patriotic and adorable while praying. It has to be some sort of satirical statement against organized religion in America, doesn’t it?

The answer to those questions is a very obvious “Yes.”

Unfortunately, the irony and hidden meaning of “Faith in America” – which, of course, honors the religious freedoms of our people – is lost on the God-hating atheist organization the Freedom From Religion Foundation. For some reason, they say a print of the painting that hangs from the office walls of Cooper Middle School – conveniently next to a portrait of George Washington – promotes Christian prayer to impressionable students and are now demanding that it be removed.

Whatever, these stupid atheist activists and their mission to make things fair for everyone need to get a life.
